Ole Gunnar Solkjaer has leaped to the defense of Paul Pogba after his comeback is delayed but he is filmed playing basketball.

In his weekly press conference, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Paul Pogba is still not fit enough to return.

In fact, he has had a minor setback and is aiming to be back before the new year.

He has already been pictured living it up in Miami, while supposedly working on his recovery in warmer weather.

Now he is caught on camera not just watching basketball but playing basketball.

Pogba is a passionate NBA fan and makes regular trips to the USA to catch big games from the courtside.

Solskajer will not have a word said about his wayward superstar, and lept to his defense when questioned on Pogba’s antics.

According to the clubs official website, manutd.com, he had this to say on Pogba:

“We don’t play basketball. I don’t see many basketball players tackling ankles, twisting and turning with studs.”

” He’s not ready to train.”

“He had another test and scan just at the start of the international break and it’s not healed yet.”

” He’s stepping up the recovery so he doesn’t have to have the cast on.”

“He’s been out for six or seven weeks so he’s gradually stepping it up, walking, on the treadmill and bike.”

” We hope to see him in 2019.”
